I previously met with Kelly and Donald for engagement photos and we had gotten a chance to get comfortable with each other. I then ran into them at another wedding I was photographing last Fall (it really is a small world!) and we were able to catch up. Kelly’s pregnancy was going well and no, Donald had not been able to talk her into a destination wedding!
Fast forward to this past Summer and I arrived at their home to rooms & rooms full of people. Wedding party, friends, parents, siblings, children, babies (3 of them under the age of 6 months), makeup artist and the multiple hairdressers. It was a seriously full house! But Kelly was relaxed and completely unfazed by all the commotion.
The sky was sunny and bright as we headed to Strathmere to capture some pre-ceremony images with Kelly, Donald and their sweet little girl. Weddings are busy and can be chaotic for little people but Kelly had the fantastic idea to bring her babysitter along for the day and it worked perfectly!
After the ceremony we captured some more images, this time of family and wedding party, before returning to the Garden House for dinner and several touching (and funny!) speeches.
It was a wonderful day and I was so happy to have played a part in it!
